18. Anty Gin

Anty-GinJust when you thought gin botanicals couldn’t get anymore outlandish in 2014, the creative chaps at the Cambridge Distillery teamed up with the Nordic Food Lab to launch Anty Gin – a gin distilled with real wood ants.

Containing the essence of approximately 62 critters found in large colonies all around the northern hemisphere, the gin also uses other spring time botanicals including wood avens, nettle and alexanders seed, as well as Bulgarian juniper.

Just 99 bottles of Anty Gin were launched in the UK market at an RRP of £200.
